Modern exterior design for a mid-century house in Chelsea


0

In this episode, we focus on improving the exterior design of this Chelsea farmhouse. Several months ago, Chelsea and her husband, Brandon, purchased a mid-century home. They actually made some minor updates before moving in with their three kids, Gus, Mary Helen and Lucy. Now that they’ve lived in the house for a while, Chelsea and Brandon are ready for some bigger projects that will really make a difference. We’re giving Chelsea’s home exterior a facelift from the 1950s and making it into this century! Chelsea’s new JELD-WEN windows make a huge difference to her home’s exterior. The Chelsea house was built in place of the Chelsea and Brandon Windows in 1956, so it was replaced. Windows – the originals – is a must. Old windows were rusty and leaky—which made them out of the question After taking measurements, JELD-WEN low power windows were installed around the perimeter of the house and sealed, and the windows were sealed with Duramaster, a new super-flexible seal, to keep them air and watertight New garage doors in Chelsea Her build with Danny gives her garage some modern glow, new garage doors just like windows, the garage door was old, rusting and leaking. Chelsea and I built new garage doors using planks with a diagonal pattern for this modern look. Once the new doors are installed, Chelsea is busy polishing and staining them. She chose a natural dye to bring out the grain in the wood as well as to protect it from the elements. Chelsea paints her new shutters to complement her home’s windows. With them. Chelsea chose to paint the shutters a warm gray from Behr. Once Chelsea paints the shutters, we begin installing the mounting hardware and begin hanging the blinds around the perimeter. The turf was worse for wear, so Chelsea and Brandon decided to pull it all off and start from scratch. As we always say, “Do it right, sleep at night!” Putting sod is very easy. First, you plow the land. Then, water it, lay it down and flatten it. Of course, it’s much easier with a team helping you. The home of “Home Owner Today” co-host Chelsea Lipford Wolff was drab before the renovation. Production Ideas The Chelsea house was built in 1956 and not much seems to have changed since then. The color was kind of “blah”, the windows were rusty and leaking, as was the garage door, and the garden and landscaping was a bit out of control. There wasn’t really anything that caught your eye or made you notice the place, but now, the whole corner seems to be alive and begging for attention. The new color on the walls is cheerful and bright and the new windows have the clean, modern look Chelsea wanted, plus plenty of efficiency, the new blinds continue that crisp look, and the new front door adds warmth and character to the home, along with cedar vibes on the front gables and new garage doors. About the back, exterior updates to Chelsea’s home have taken its appeal to the next level. It now has a welcoming feel at home and has brought this mid-century home back to life. in-depth reading
